I usually work on my home computer but I had to go to the office in Durham on Tuesday for a meeting, and I had my camera with me. I didn't take the time to stop and take any pictures but I did manage to take a few from my car in downtown Durham near my office.The Durham Athletic Park above is where the baseball scenes in the movie Bull Durham were shot. Although the Durham Bulls moved to a much larger athletic park in 1995, the old park above is still used for amateur leagues. The old park happens to be close to my office so I snapped a shot on the way there. What I was surprised by was that after I left the office to drive home I noticed the mural below.
The mural made me think that perhaps the baseball had been knocked out of the park and was sailing over a skyscraper. You can click inside the photo above to get a better look at the mural and I also did a recent post with a closeup of the mural on my other blog. Before I got on the freeway that would take me home (I live about 30 miles from my office which is why I LOVE working from home), I took a few photographs of the downtown Durham neighborhoods which have been fixed up.In some ways Raleigh where I live, and Durham where my office is have both had a move back downtown in terms of the neighborhoods. The older houses which used to be decrepit and falling apart have been restored and fixed up and it's nice to see that.That's it for my weekend snapshots. I went for a walk on Sunday (today) with Bill on a new trail I stumbled across on Monday and found out where it hooked up with the trails I'm familiar with but I'll save that for another post.
